Overview: This is a beautiful English poured wax lady. Her wax shoulderhead, arms and legs are all in excellent condition with no cracking, crazing, damage or repairs. Her original body is also in excellent aged condition. She is fully dressed in all antique clothing, hat and shoes – including her corset! Layaway is always an option, but please contact me prior to purchase to discuss terms. Here are the details:
Head: Her poured wax shoulderhead is in fine condition. She has lovely inset blue glass eyes. Her modeling of features is excellent with defined eye lids and philtrum, sharp nose and pouty mouth. She has long blond mohair inset into her scalp. She is unmarked, although her pink skin tone may indicate manufacture by Pierotti. Examination: Excellent condition. No cracking, crazing, damage or repairs. The wax is clean.
Body: Her original body is typical of these dolls - white cloth with stitched joints. Her long poured wax limbs are perfect. The legs reach well above the knee and the arms reach far above the elbow. The hands and feet are detailed with fingernails and toenails. She has a very tiny waist and wide hips.
Clothes: She is fully dressed in All ntique clothing, hat and shoes. She wears a long dress with a windowpane pattern. It appears white but I believe it was once pale blue. There are ruffles along the bodice and the hem. The dress is sashed with a wide blue velvet ribbon. Underneath, she wears a chemise, half-slip and bloomers. The chemise closes with a blue ribbon. She retains her corset that is surely original as it is perfectly form-fitting to her tiny waist and wide hips. She has tan stockings and black leather slip-on shoes with toe buckles. Finally, she wears a wired blue hat with black trim (ties are missing).
